Can't wait to see what the Note 4 really offers.
I wish they would go quad speaker, but I doubt they will even move back to stereo speakers.....yet. They will...but when?
5.5 is perfect. Was going to upgrade to S5 but the rumoured higher specs and S Pen are a bonus worth waiting another month for.
Although we all know that this 5.5" screen rumor isn't true, anyone who states that Samsung is copying Apple has to be incredibly dense.
Fact is, countless articles have already outlined Apple's move to larger displays is following Samsung in an attempt to better compete. This is nothing new to Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Note - 5.3 inch screen, released Oct. 2011
Samsung Galaxy Nexus - 4.65 inch screen, released Nov. 2011
Samsung Galaxy S III - 4.8 inch screen, released May 2012
Samsung Galaxy Note II - 5.5 inch screen, released Sept. 2012
The list goes on and on...
In 2011, Apple released the iPhone 4s with a 3.5 inch display.
Interestingly enough, Apple is currently struggling to figure out how to implement a 5.5 inch screen. That, in itself, is a disaster waiting to happen. And considering that it's widely known that iPhone users don't like large screens, the 5.5 inch model is going to flop.

Muthu, 05 Aug 2014These are too big claims to make, isn't it? Samsung releasing Alpha is not copying Apple, just... moreHey fanboy M stop protecting your Almighty Shamesung.The real deal phablet king was the Sony Z Ultra,even the Z Ultra are older than u crapy plastic toy Note 3.do u dare to wash your Note 3 screen direct with water?I even can get a same build quality from a cheaper G Grand2.Shamesung please stop cheating your beloved consumers.
"5.5 screen? ISOCELL Camera? This contradicts all recent rumors. I doubt the phone is going back to "5.5 although anything is possible. All i know is, they better produce a much better camera than on any previous Samsung phone, otherwise, it will be a deal killer for me.
Bigger than a Note 2 is to big for me. So a slimmer design with 5.5" will be perfect.
Further more: wait and we will see. It's just a phone. There a more important thinks in life!
However I am also wayting for this phone, but I wait patently. A few weeks later does not matter to me.
I won't even look at it if it has only a 5.5 inch screen. I will be disappointed with anything less than 5.9 inches.
i doubt they will shrink the size of the screen, i think more like they will take lg approach and shrink the bezels and get the phone smaller, they in fact could easily fit a 5.9" screen into a device the same size of note 3, but i dont think that will happen either, i reckon it will be a 5.7" QHD amoled display, i think it is still to eary for these new flexible displays because its only the screen that can bend for now, i think for sure it will have SD805 with 3gb ram, and the usual connectivity, there maybe some waterproofing on board which would be a nice touch and i hope a newer more powerful low light camera as well, we will see next month hopefully. i am waiting patiently for it
GGGGG, 05 Aug 2014What the???? Ever since apple announce 4.7 and 5.5 iphone. Samsung follows with a Galaxt Alpha... moreThese are too big claims to make, isn't it? Samsung releasing Alpha is not copying Apple, just releasing a competitor in that segment at this point of time(though that size does look odd for Samsung at this point of time). Actually it was apple who was copying Samsung because Samsung released S3 with that size 2 years ago. Apple has never released a phone with that size. Now, tell me who is copying who?
I am ignoring the note 4 vs iphone 6 with 5.5 inch comparison, it is beyond stupidity to even talk about it. Samsung is a king of phablets even now, and no amount of apple fanboyism can mask it.
ohoboho, 05 Aug 20142,560 x 1,440 is not four times as 1080p. 3840 x 2160 is four times as 1080p!!!Dude they compared it to Note 2, that has HD resolution i.e. 1280 X 720
N QHD is 4 times of HD
ohoboho, 05 Aug 20142,560 x 1,440 is not four times as 1080p. 3840 x 2160 is four times as 1080p!!!In LG G3, they said it can watch 4k video on their screen. If you have UHD tv at home it is not problem. But if you dont own one, 2k display can help you.
shuon, 05 Aug 2014Gosh! so many Samsung Haters in this page. Well, as long as Kpop rocks! so did Samsung and LG.No no, i dont hate korean. I just hate useless innovation and their increase in price for that innovation.
AmateurHistorian, 05 Aug 2014Samsung is trying to match iPhone 6's size for size. How original. No wonder Samsung is going down.Hello? Can you please get your fact right? Samsung is the first company that released 5.something inch phone when they released galaxy note. Galaxy note 2 sized 5.5 inch. How can you say they copy iphone?
Wow 5.5 inch....thats really great...i wish that will be smaller than note with slim bezzels......thank u so much if its true.
AmateurHistorian, 05 Aug 2014Samsung is trying to match iPhone 6's size for size. How original. No wonder Samsung is going down.wait was it samsung or apple who changed there 4inch screen size to 4.7 and a rumored 5.5... and you think samsung is copying size to size..
Phil, 05 Aug 2014Did you just really leave a comment about how Samsung is stealing Iphone6 screen size? HAHAHAH... moreSo why did they settle on a 5.5 inch display? Why should they match up with the big iphone class?
